Hull City 4-1 Rotherham United: Jaden Philogene double helps return Tigers to play-off places

Hull City moved back into the Championship play-off places by blowing away relegation-haunted Rotherham at the MKM Stadium.

The Tigers scored three times in the first 20 minutes, through Tyler Morton, Jaden Philogene and Scott Twine, to ensure the game was over as a contest by half-time.

Philogene made it six goals in his past seven games with his second of the night shortly into the second half as the East Yorkshire outfit eased to their fourth win in six and stayed in the hunt for the top six.

Grant Hall headed in a consolation goal but the continuation of the managerless Millers' dreadful away form - they have now lost eight and drawn one of their nine away games in the league, shipping 21 goals along the way - means they stay four points adrift of safety in 23rd.
